Like-minded Hosts – How to Fully Utilize PeerMatch
22 Aug 2015
On our previous post, we have mentioned how like-minded hosts can give their guests a memorable and enjoying trip. We also mentioned on how PeerMatching can help in having the right guests for you.
Pandabed’s Peermatching is an add-on that helps travelers and homeowners to have a better understanding of each other before the actual meeting takes place. The concept is similar with online dating and matchmaking sites just that it is a host to guest book and travel relationship with a social approach.
For both host and guest, there are barriers for two parties to get engaged in such a relationship: culture, religion, language, gender and age. And being a host posting for Pandabed means that you are opening your doors to different people: to the public, to strangers.
To get the preferred Peermatch results when searching for a property or guests, both travelers and homeowners will need to fill in one-minute questionnaire to indicate and weigh their preferences. This would include gender preferences, spoken languages, interaction level, religion preference, and age group.
Hosts would want to take advantage of the Peermatching algorithm by accurately putting their preferences. That way, guests that will enquire about their property are matched with the people that they wanted to stay in their homes.
However, this is just half of the process. The other half is how you would communicate with your potential guests and understand more of their culture and needs.
